Recent research conducted by Booking.com has revealed that Travellers today have more options than ever when it comes to booking their next getaway. Some of the most talked about and on the rise accommodation types around the world are:
Luxury Tent: Driven by the desire to make camping a more enjoyable experience for everyone, recent years have seen a significant increase in interest for glamorous camping – or glamping – with almost a third of global travellers stating that they prefer unique and quirky accommodations while on holidays, such as luxury tents.
Riad: Stemming from the Arabian term for garden, a riad is a type of traditional Moroccan house or palace built around an interior courtyard. These palatial stays offer beauty in their architectural and floral design.
Holiday Homes: While travelling is often about branching out and seeing new places, some of us still look for the comforts of home. For many travellers a holiday home offers the best of both worlds and the opportunity truly embrace their chosen destination.
Capsule Hotels: From one small stay to another, capsule hotels offer perfectly formed accommodation options for budget-conscious travellers. These extremely small “rooms” are often found in more casual accommodation offerings and are stacked high, side-by-side with steps for access and is also one of the fastest growing categories of accommodation.
Chalet: As picture perfect as a souvenir postcard, a chalet offers an alternative alpine accommodation. The wooden houses with overhanging eaves often form part of skiing resorts. In fact, cabins and chalets are the desired accommodation for almost a sixth of global travellers and are also amongst the fastest rising in relative popularity
Apartments: These self-contained units often provide the perfect balance of escape and home comforts for city living.
Tiny Houses: The tiny house movement sees people embracing a smaller and simpler existence. A property that’s less than 500 feet would technically constitute a tiny house and these small dwellings are popping up for travellers across the globe to provide a peek into the trendy and eco-conscious way of living that’s simple, uncomplicated and cosy.
